9th Annual Estuary Carol Walk
Mansfield Drive Parking Lot
You can download and print the Carol Booklet on this page or view it on your phone so that you can sing along with the group.
The ninth annual Comox Valley Estuary Carol walk begins at dusk (4:00 pm), Sunday, December 8nd at Mansfield Drive parking lot (behind Bayside Cafe at 26th off Cliffe Ave). Carollers may also join at the Airpark Marina parking lot or on the covered patio at Locals Restaurant, near the Old House Hotel and Spa. Children and dogs welcome! We live in a Canadian rainforest so dress for the weather. Carry a water bottle. Bring a flashlight or headlamp if possible. Park vehicles at Mansfield Drive, the Airpark or near the Old House.
Locals Restaurant Chef Ronald and Host Tricia St. Pierre offer a complementary wassail cup to all wandering minstrels arriving about 5:30 pm. Those staying for dinner should make a reservation prior to the event (250 338-6493) and may order off the regular menu or select the seasonal special.
The walk will be led this year by the Beach Street Singers, under the direction of Gloria Hereuf. Sheila Borman is organizing the volunteer team, supported by St. John’s Ambulance volunteers.
We are keeping it green this Earth Week with planting activities, educational presentations and community outreach. To help with these endeavors we are in need of volunteers.

Come out and participate in this special Clean-up effort as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on September 25 and 26th, 2021.
Here in the Comox Valley, our local beaches have a story to tell about a small fish that is so much more. Maybe you’ve seen Project Watershed out on local beaches, with measuring tapes and high visibility vests, trying to learn more about this small fish with a big impact!
Project Watershed held a community forum via Zoom to explain the restoration process that we are embarking on at Kus-kus-sum beginning June 21st, 2021. This is recording of that Zoom meeting.
Summer is almost here and Project Watershed is gearing up for another round of surf smelt sampling on beaches around the Comox Valley.
